  2. 2019 German Grand PrixPosted on 25th July 2019, 11:18 | Written by Keith Collantine Mercedes have revealed a special white livery for this weekend’s German Grand Prix. ADVERT | BECOME A SUPPORTER & GO AD-FREE The team, whose parent company is also the title sponsor of the Hockenheim race, is commemorating 125 years of motorsport with a “commemorative livery” this weekend. According to Mercedes, its original white colouring was removed in the 1930s in order to save weight. In press material sent out ahead of the German Grand Prix, Mercedes explained why the white paint was scraped off their cars at the 1934 Eifelrennen. “The Eifelrennen, held on 3 June 1934 at the Nürburgring, was the first race in which the Mercedes-Benz W25 competed. The car was a newly designed race car for the 1934 Grand Prix season, which saw the introduction of a new set of regulations that limited the total weight of the car to 750 kilograms without fuel, oil, coolant, and tyres. Apart from the maximum weight the regulations left a lot of room for innovation, not restricting the design of the car in any other way. The Mercedes-Benz W25 followed a classic vehicle architecture; the rear-wheel drive car was powered by a supercharged 3.4-litre in-line 8-cylinder engine that was mounted in the front and produced an output of 354 hp (260 kW). “It was a mighty race car, but according to Silver Arrows legend there was one small issue with it: when the W25 was weighed the day before its first race, it was slightly above the weight limit of 750 kg. Allegedly, the team was able to bring the weight down to within regulatory limits by scraping off its white paint. “Without the white paint, the metal bodywork of the car was exposed, giving it a silver look: the first Silver Arrow was born.” Mercedes has also restored its heritage red numbering which was also used on its F1 from 2010 until last year.
  3. Jack Clarke clinched his move to QPR yesterday, going out on loan from Tottenham Hotspur. The winger is hoping to fare better than he did on his last loan spell back at Leeds United. Best Footballer From Every Continent This Decade Clarke was not given a proper chance by Leeds manager Marcelo Bielsa, who had him mostly playing under-23 football. In an interview posted by QPR's social media feed, Clarke said that the prospect of working with an English manager appealed to him. He said he was impressed by boss Mark Warburton's clear communication. Leeds United's Jack Clarke takes on Salford City's Danny Whitehead Clarke said: "It's always good to know what a managers thinking and know that your in their plans, and I just felt like that was something that I needed. "A fresh change, an English manager, that was a big factor in coming here." Irrespective of nationality, it just seems Clarke needs a manager who believes in him. He does not have an English manager at Tottenham, but he has a long way to go before he gets on Jose Mourinho's radar. Strong performances at QPR in the second half of the season will get him back on track. Inevitably his first game this weekend is against former club Leeds.
  4. Here’s your daily horoscope, according to Mecca Woods, Bustle’s resident astrologer and creator of We’re constantly fascinated by what our zodiac sign says about our lives, whether it's which signs are most compatible or how each sign handles conflict in relationships. Below, a look at how astrology will affect our lives this weekend. The weekend gets off to a bumpy start thanks to the Moon in pleasurable Libra squaring off with multiple planets in no-nonsense Capricorn on Friday morning. With this kind of cosmic weather, it might be hard to get into a good mood. By Friday afternoon though, the Moon shifts into all-or-nothing Scorpio, putting us in the mood to pursue our passions and feed our desires. Our emotions may be more intense than usual, especially as the Moon squares off with Mercury in Aquarius, which could stir up disagreements or the need to vent. However, with the Scorpio Moon teaming up with sweet Venus in Pisces by later tonight, the vibe tones down a bit as we find ourselves in the mood for romantic encounters, intimate get-togethers with loved ones, or some chilled out time alone. Saturday could bring us some creative urges, unexpected events, and a-ha moments as Mercury in unconventional Aquarius squares off with unconventional Uranus in Taurus in the a.m. Though this is the kind cosmic combo that can trigger accidents and other upsetting behavior or events through rash, scattered, or impulsive thinking if we're not careful. Luckily, the Scorpio Moon teams up with Jupiter in Capricorn and dreamy Neptune in Pisces, which can help to calm things down a bit, or at least give us other things to think about (like what we can do to spread good vibes towards others). Come Sunday, the atmosphere lightens up significantly as the Moon moves into happy-go-lucky Sagittarius in the late afternoon, where the Moon stays well into Monday night. With the Moon in Sagittarius, we should find ourselves seeking out some fun and adventure. By Monday morning, the Sun leaves Capricorn for friendly and innovative Aquarius, officially kicking off Aquarius season. We'll need some friendly, cool-headed vibes on this day as well since the Sagittarius Moon will be squaring off with Venus in Pisces and teaming up with aggressive Mars in Sagittarius. The key to keeping cool under the pressure will be to let logic and objectivity reign. Read below to see what the stars mean for your sign today, and make sure to check out your January 2020 monthly horoscope.

Vice President Mike Pence, right, swears in Air Force General John Raymond as Chief of Space Operations, in his Ceremonial Office in the White House complex, Jan. 14, 2020 in Washington, as his wife, Molly Raymond, looks on. PENTAGON - Vice President Mike Pence has formally sworn in in Gen. John "Jay" Raymond as the new Chief of Space Operations Tuesday at the White House,. Raymond assumed the duties of the first head of the Space Force on December 20, 2019, when U.S. President Donald Trump signed into law the National Defense Authorization Act that officially launched the new force. "The Space Force will help us deter aggression and control the ultimate high ground," Trump said at the NDAA signing last month. Officials say the Space Force will organize, train and equip military personnel who primarily focus on space operations.

Vice President Mike Pence, right, applauds during swearing in ceremony for Air Force General John Raymond as Chief of Space Operations, in his Ceremonial Office in the White House complex, Jan. 14, 2020 in Washington. Raymond was named commander of the new United States Space Command upon its creation in August of last year. That command seeks to better organize the U.S. military's space assets and operations. The military's role in space has come under scrutiny because the U.S. is increasingly reliant on orbiting satellites that are difficult to protect. Satellites provide communications, navigation, intelligence and other services vital to the military and the national economy. The Space Force is the newest military service branch and will fall under the Department of the Air Force, much as the U.S. Marine Corps is a separate service within the Department of the Navy. Officials have said the Space Force will initially include thousands of Air Force service members and civilian personnel currently serving within the Air Force's Space Command. Personnel from the Army and Navy's space programs also are eventually expected to be integrated into the new service branch.
  6. There is one question that's dominating my interactions with Linux users on social media lately: "I want to buy a new laptop to run Linux, but do I have to purchase one from a company like Dell, Purism or System76? Aren't we at a point where Linux 'just works' on anything?" The answer isn't black and white, but I'll do my best to give you a sensible response and explain the advantages of buying a computer that's purpose-built for Linux, as well as what you can expect when snatching up any modern laptop from HP, Acer, Asus, Lenovo and other OEMs that ship with Windows by default. ThinkPad P Series Laptops now ship with Ubuntu ThinkPad P Series Laptops now ship with Ubuntu LENOVO What Kind Of Specs Should I Look For? Linux uses less of your computer's resources than Windows, so the hardware requirements for running a Linux distro may not be as steep as Windows 10. But the specs you're looking for will vary depending on your needs. So here are some basic scenarios alongside the minimum CPU, RAM and space requirements you should look for: Basic web browsing, video streaming and productivity: A laptop for as low as $250 is totally reasonable here. Look for a 1080p display, 4GB of memory, at least 64GB of storage space, and an Intel Celeron N4100 CPU or better. Today In: Innovation + Light gaming: If you typically play indie games that aren't graphically demanding, look for a laptop with a 1080p display, at least 4GB of memory, at least 128GB of storage, and a 7th-generation Intel Core i3 CPU or better. Games like Stardew Valley, Magic: Arena, Hearthstone and Dota 2 run perfectly fine on Intel's integrated graphics. + Heavy AAA gaming (or Virtualization): If you prefer more eyecandy in your games (think Shadow of the Tomb Raider, World of Warcraft, Hitman 2 and No Man's Sky -- yep, those all run on Linux!) you'll need to step everything up. I recommend a 1080p display, a 7th-generation Intel Core i7 CPU or better, at least 8GB of memory, at least 256 GB of storage space, and an Nvidia GTX 1050 Ti or AMD Radeon RX 560 or better. If you're targeting a 1440p or 4K display, consider 16GB of RAM and an Nvidia GTX 1080 or better. Aside from the dedicated GPU recommendation, these are also good targets if you're planning on running virtual machines. The more storage, CPU cores and RAM you have, the better!

Generally speaking, yes! There are exceptions, but by and large you can go out and buy a new laptop from a major hardware manufacturer (excluding Apple's newer MacBooks) and throw your favorite distribution on it without expecting any major headaches. The Linux kernel (the operating system that runs underneath your GUI applications and desktop environment) has advanced by leaps and bounds in the last several years. While certain "exotic" or less po[CENSORED]r external peripherals (such as USB video capture cards) may not be instantly recognized, open source developers at Intel, AMD, Canonical, Dell, Red Hat, Google and elsewhere have put serious effort into supporting an exhaustive range of hardware. Whether you're buying a thin-and-light ultrabook, or a beefy gaming laptop, here are some valuable things to know for anything manufactured remotely recently: #1) Any laptop with all-Intel components will work flawlessly, right out of the box. Intel typically adds kernel-level support for all of its processors and components like Wireless adapters months before it has even launched a product. The same holds true for the vast majority of -- if not all -- modern AMD and Ryzen CPUs. #2) The majority of internal Wireless and Bluetooth adapters work on Linux, although they may require "closed" (not open source) firmware. There are exceptions like the Marvell adapter present in some Surface Pro laptops and I also recommend avoiding adapters from Broadcom. The good news here is that Intel WiFi/Bluetooth adapters are pretty commonplace lately. As a last resort, though, a wide range of external USB WiFi dongles are also supported, so in the rare case you're having trouble connecting up your WiFi, this solution should do the trick. #3) Any recent mobile AMD Radeon or Nvidia GTX/RTX graphics card will also work out of the box. The open source "MESA" driver for AMD GPUs is included in the kernel and is frequently updated with performance improvements. And while the open source "Nouveau" driver for Nvidia GPUs is also included, it lags behind in features and performance compared to Nvidia's proprietary drivers. Fortunately, yes, Nvidia does write timely drivers for Linux, and they're even included as a default installation option for distributions like Pop!_OS, Solus, Ubuntu, Deepin and many others. Even if your distribution doesn't include Nvidia's proprietary driver by default, it's as easy as adding a PPA (an additional software source) and installing it. What About Laptops With Hybrid Graphics? Nvidia Optimus technology can be tricky on Linux Nvidia Optimus technology can be tricky on Linux NVIDIA This is where things get a little tricky in Linux land. Hybrid Graphics laptops comprise an Intel chipset with Nvidia dedicated graphics. On Windows, your machine will use Intel's onboard graphics for less demanding tasks (browsing, watching video, etc) and automatically switch to Nvidia graphics for gaming. On Linux, you're frequently tasked with choosing one or the other to run your desktop. However, System76 laptops running Pop OS have a workaround that allow you to easily switch between the two. This requires a reboot, but it's the most elegant (and easiest on the user) solution I've seen. Hybrid Graphics can also pose initial OS installation problems for distributions that embrace 100-percent free software, meaning that the proprietary Nvidia driver is not available out of the box. This was my experience with Fedora 29 on a Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Extreme. So if you're a gamer, appreciate long battery life and don't want to get under the hood to mess with configuring hybrid graphics switching, a laptop from System76 is a solid choice. Should I Consider A Linux Laptop From Dell, Purism, Lenovo, System76? Pictured: Dell XPS 13, Star LabTop, System76 Oryx Pro Pictured: Dell XPS 13, Star LabTop, System76 Oryx Pro JASON EVANGELHO In my circles, the conversation around buying a Linux laptop tends to revolve primarily around these four companies. While you shouldn't feel locked in to these specific hardware makers, I'll tackle these individually and give you the pros and cons from my point of view: DELL: If you like Dell already, are thinking about an XPS 13 or a Precision Mobile Workstation (or just appreciate that InfinityEdge display), this is a no-brainer.First of all, Dell's Developer Edition systems clock in at a lower price tag since you're not paying for Windows. Second, Dell's Project Sputnik team works alongside Red Hat, Canonical and others in the Linux ecosystem to developer great Linux drivers for this hardware, then sends them "upstream" to benefit anyone using a Linux kernel. This means that although they ship with Ubuntu 18.04, any Linux distribution you throw on it should work. System76: I run this company's Linux distribution, Pop OS, as my daily driver. And I run it on an Oryx Pro laptop from System76. It is by far the best experience I've had using Linux, especially on the gaming front. Their support is top-notch, the build quality is excellent and thoughtful touches like Hybrid Graphics switching and built-in power management options make things even smoother. If there's a downside, it's price. An Oryx Pro, for example, will run you several hundred dollars more than a comparable Windows laptop (compare a 2019 Dell G7 Gaming Laptop against the Oryx Pro if you're curious). Purism: If you want to embrace a company that is decidedly privacy-conscious and strictly embraces open source software, Purism's Librem 13 and Librem 15 laptops are worth considering. They feature hardware kill switches for webcam, Wireless and microphone. Curiously, though, their laptops ship with the Bluetooth adapter disabled since it requires closed firmware. There's a workaround for that, too, but if out-of-the-box functionality and price are heavy considerations for you, comparing a system like the Dell XPS 13 against the Librem 13 will leave you with a sobering conclusion. Purism is a small company, and while their philosophies are admirable, you'll pay a lot extra for it. Lenovo: The Linux community swears by their ThinkPads, and it's a brand that consistently runs like a dream with Linux. Lenovo even recently announced that all of its refreshed ThinkPad P series laptops will ship with Ubuntu as a pre-installed option. ThinkPads are also notoriously durable, so if you're already a fan, this is worthy of consideration. Great Resources For Research And Buying Generally speaking, you can rest assured that practically any Windows laptop you buy off the shelf today will run Linux. But it doesn't hurt to be absolutely sure! Though there isn't one central, all-encompassing resource, there are a few websites you should definitely check out before plunking down your money. Search It: Whether you prefer Google, StartPage, Duck Duck Go or any other search engine, make this a priority. Simply search the exact brand and model of the laptop you're considering and include the Linux distribution you want to run. For example "Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Ubuntu 19.04." Look for Reddit threads, articles or forum posts from users running that hardware and distro combination. Linux Preloaded: If you want to be absolutely certain that Linux will work out of the box on a new laptop, Linux Preloaded presents a curated list of vendors (such as Star Labs, Puget Systems, Entroware and Tuxedo Computers) around the world offering custom or off-the-shelf laptops with Linux pre-tested and pre-installed. You can also view the companies by geographic location. Ubuntu Certified Laptops: Canonical works directly with several OEMs like Lenovo, Dell and Acer to ensure that Ubuntu 18.04 LTS works flawlessly out of the box. In this list you'll find, for example, more than 60 Lenovo laptops you can snatch up with confidence. Lenovo Laptop Compatibility List: This database contains Linux hardware compatibility info for old and new Lenovo systems and multiple Linux distributions.

  7. It’s early days, but now is the time to start exploring quantum computing technology. Using it effectively will require completely re-thinking how you program. Quantum computing is one of those technologies that is easy to dismiss as too “out there” to worry about today. Even the most optimistic estimates set practical utilization more than a decade off. But the technology involves such a disruptive paradigm shift in computing that prudent developers should begin looking into quantum computing right now. Discussions of quantum computing tend to focus on its potential to vastly out-perform conventional computing. One application often mentioned in this context is cryptography, specifically the cracking of data security by extracting private encryption keys from protected message traffic. The algorithms for doing so are known, but are so computationally intensive that cracking, say, a 2048-bit RSA encryption key (widely used for securing today's Internet traffic) would take decades even for the fastest supercomputer available. Recent estimates, however, suggest that a quantum computer could crack the code in eight hours. This Aspencore Special Project on Quantum Computing aims to provide you with a starting point for assessing this emerging technology and its potential impact on your business. You can click the logo above to see a list of other Special Projects that we’ve done thus far. This alarming prospect — that encrypted communications once thought to be secure long beyond the protected information's useful lifetime may be in danger — is what generated so much excitement about quantum computing in the first place. But code-cracking is not the only application where the technology promises disruptive breakthroughs, and these other opportunities have further fueled interest. Medicine, materials science, molecular biology, and financial applications are all exploring what quantum computing can do for them. And the interest is growing. In 2018 the US Government passed the National Quantum Initiative Act, creating a National Quantum Coordination Office and providing $1.2 billion to fund quantum information science activities for the next five years. The EU has also authorized funding, up to €1 billion, for a quantum master plan. And China is investing heavily, seeking to leapfrog the US in quantum technology. Quantum computers are already operational, although currently too simple to outperform traditional computers (a milestone known as quantum supremacy). IBM has made its Q System One computer available for commercial experimentation and research and created a network of partners such as Exxon/Mobile to further the nascent industry. D-wave, Rigetti, and several other companies have also made available functioning quantum computers. Google has a quantum AI research effort, as does Intel, and Microsoft has created its own Quantum Network of software and hardware providers to further the technology. This processor from D-Wave is one of several operational quantum systems available to application developers exploring the technology. (Source: D-Wave) This processor from D-Wave is one of several operational quantum systems available to application developers exploring the technology. (Source: D-Wave) So, it's still early days for the technology and many years before it comes out of the research realm into practical application. Yet it is still important for industries to begin exploring the use of this technology today. This early start is necessary because quantum computing is not simply faster computing, it differs dramatically from traditional computing in the way it solves problems. Developers will need the time to become familiar with the new approach so that they are prepared to use quantum computing as soon as it is ready. Traditional computing achieves its results by following a sequence of steps, called an algorithm, when making its calculations. If seeking to find a value that optimizes or satisfies some complex function, for instance, a traditional computer must algorithmically explore, one after another, all the possible choices. The quantum computer, though, essentially considers all the possible answers simultaneously through the quantum mechanical properties of entanglement and superposition. To utilize a quantum computer the programmer specifies a series of quantum gates that establish the conditions defining the problem to be solved. This quantum gate setup leverages the probability and wave interference nature of the quantum computer's bits (called qubits or sometimes qbits), to alter an input vector so that the output vector represents a likely answer to the problem. A single run does not produce certainty in its result, however, it merely has a high probability of being correct. By conducting many such trials, the quantum computer can increase that probability to as near certainty as desired. And even though it requires multiple runs to yield an accurate result, the total computational time can be substantially less than the algorithmic approach if the quantum computer has enough qbits in play. This approach is so different from conventional computing that current computer and programming expertise will essentially be inapplicable to quantum computing. Developers will have to start from scratch to learn quantum computing. The time to start building quantum computing expertise, then, is now. The Aspencore Network created this Quantum Computing Special Project to help give you that head start. In The Basics of Quantum Computing—A Tutorial we provide insights into how a quantum computer works and where you can develop some experience with them. What’s Next in Quantum Computing? offers a glimpse into the current trends in the technology's evolution. Power supply management in Quantum computers looks at the issues inherent in powering these exotic devices. Finally, we ask Will we need a ‘supercomputer’ on our desk, to explore the business reasons for embracing the technology.
